We dine here 2-3 times a month- the service and people are wonderful - however, the decor needs to be kept up- too many unlit hurricane lamps and table candles,and the outdoor furniture is already looking tired- the veranda can look unkept at times -...More

We loved sitting outside sipping our Siren cocktails (highly recommend) - it was a wonderful romantic place to enjoy the evening breeze and lovely views of the pools.

We only had breakfast here on our recent stay but ate there every morning because we enjoyed it so much. The view is lovely and the service excellent. They also have great coffee!

Service and food were delightful. Much better than expected! Was prepared for a mediocre meal and had a really good meal instead.

Thank you for the info. I am a bit hesitant. I will check out the new menu. It can't be any worse then what it was. Such a shame to have served such mediocre food and menu in such a beautiful setting.
